george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrificcally strong mandate from the public. won't be able to say, look, an enormous majority of the public wants to go my way. if this election is very narrow or even worse, contested, the president is going to have a very demanding job. >> when you speak to voters in ohio, everybody says they want compromise, they want to get things done. do they? >> no. by and large when you talk to american voters, and you've done this yourself, i know, yes, everybody wants compromise and everyone wants bipartisanship. but usually the definition of bipartisanship is the other side should come in my direction. so that's a hazard for any candidate,

recovery. that's well better than the george bush recovery and our modest growth, i agree with you, should be higher. it's also the fastest growth rate of all the advanced countries of the world. the world economy is in a tough spot. so, i think just looking at the conditions in the u.s. and saying it's because of u.s. policy is a little misleading. stuart: okay, what about this 14.6% real unemployment rate. because that's an indication of how it feels out there on the ground. >> yes. stuart: how it feels, it's a political thing, i understand that and it's not pure economics, i do understand that, but that's the reality on the ground. >> no, i'm not disputing that. look, i'm not disputing that the real job market conditions are different than just what the standard unemployment number is. stuart: hold on a second. and. >> wait, wait, wait. here is what i said. we didn't get our money's worth-- we didn't get our money's worth. you go an extra 5 1/2 trillion into debt and i expect better than 7.9 unemployment rate and 14.6 real. >> stuart, the 14.6 unemployment rate, you keep failing to ment

the election, and four days after the tape came out in 2004, george w. bush went on to beat john kerry in the presidential election that year by less than three points. there is, thankfully, no chance of osama bin laden releasing a videotape this year, because he is dead as a door nail. but we did have an october surprise of a different sort this year. with this giant devastating storm hitting the most densely populated part of the united states. and it really is almost no precedent in american politics for something this large happening outside the political sphere, something this large happening this close to when we vote in an election that is this close. there are only a couple of other instances in our history when anything like this has happened. lots of people, of course, are asking how this disaster on the east coast could affect our election. honestly, the answer is we do not know. there is not enough relevant historical precedent to study in order to come up with a historically well-informed answer to that question. the sample size is just too small. we cannot say at this poi

or others is a very valuable story, especially very close to the election today. you remember george bush when he stood with a megaphone at 9/11, create ad tremendous amount of support in that story. that imagery is very, very powerful. it makes him authentic and is effective. david: talk about obama's picking on mitt romney particularly with the bain capital stuff. this buy, bain capital is bad organization and guy who started it is bad too. how did that story turn out? >> you know i think it is authentic from obama saying it from that standpoint. i don't think it is particularly effective. it does not move many people across the meter. one of the things the story has to shine through. if the storyteller isn't authentic whatever he or she is saying isn't memorable, isn't actionable. i think that story has worn thin. david: finally the idea obama is sort of real historic game-changer, he can walk on water. he got the nobel peace prize before he did anything for example, has that story worn thin? >> well it did until the bin laden situation happened. because that was really, you know, magi

going after george w. bush about his military service. >> yeah. look i mean, what has two thumbs and thinks the mainstream media is liberal? this guy. it is an old argument and tired argument but not an untrue argument. it seems to me a lot of the mainstream media basically, they are working from the same cues that the same assumptions that the essentially the democratic party is working from. so in the weeks that the benghazi story has been unfolding and the president has been saying these really outrage justly untrue things about what you ordered, when he ordered it and got all the information outgoing back to susan rise how the cia operatives, basically our ambassador's bodyguards is flatly untrue and no one revisited that. the media is obsessing the war on women and binders and all of this, sort of nonsense about big bird and i think things are. doesn't mean they're insincere but where they get excited lines up with democrats. jon: it's a training world. jonah goldberg, thank you. >> great to be here, thanks. jenna: we're awaiting some live remarks from governor romney. his c

as the republican caucus? >> to use george bush's phrase, the chances are slim to none and slim left the building. david's reasoning is just plain faulty. tom and i have been here 43 years immersed in the politics of congress. we've never seen it this dysfunctional. congressional republicans are at the root of it but those congressional republicans basically have stood by silently while mitt romney made this violent etch a sketch move not because they believe he will govern as a bipartisan moderate, but only to win and then he will adopt their agenda and if he doesn't, the idea that they will quietly go along, because as david said, they're going to want their president to succeed despite the right wing primary challenges they face, is just frankly bizarre reasoning. >> that's a good point. and thomas, you know, "usa today" has a story about grover norquist talking about the stalemate. americans for tax reform president grover norquist whose anti-tax oath has been signed by almost every republican member of congress is girding for a fight if obama is re-elected. no compromise norquist said adding
research said and what the republicans have pushed back on is it didn't work. the george bush administration is seven years of empirical evidence that that does not work as an economic program. >> do you think, andy, this latest jobs number changes the trajectory of the election on tuesday? >> i think it just firms up people's understanding and the consumer confidence number, i think, is really important as well. things are getting better, slower than we want. we need to do more. i do think it firms up people's belief we can have four more years. >> probably up until hurricane sandy, you know, it was -- it really did feel like mitt romney was going to win this election. now, i don't know if sandy changes things or not. the president showed leadership. so i think that certainly has been a positive for him. if romney does get elected, give me your idea of what the ramifications are for the economy, for the unions. how do you see things playing out if mitt romney wins? >> i think it would be sad day for the middle class. i think it'll be great day for people who have a lot of mon
